    Please be advised of a surcharge for late night, holidays and extra luggage.

    What is the grocery surcharge? Is it for the taxi waiting?

    apparently the taxis line up and wait at the grocery stores for customers to hop in.
    arubaace was charged this surcharge from superfoods to lacabana.

    i had never heard of it til he mentioned it.
    i questioned on of aruba's taxi drivers and he confirmed that there is a surcharge.
    but i have seen nothing official on the taxi rate sheet about this.

    So the gov't sets the rates, but the taxi drivers arbitrarily add surcharges? Hmmm, think I'll keep renting a car.

    unsure if it is arbitrary or if i just cannot find it in the gvmt documents.
    i am going to send bully a message to see if he can advise.

    Thanks Andrea. I don't have a problem with the surcharge, but was wondering how it came about.
